Chris Evans to leave Radio 2.

Why on earth would he do that? He has the biggest radio show in Europe with nearly ten million listeners. Why would he go to Virgin Radio, a tiny digital-only station with about 5% of that listenership? There is, of course, this mischievous and completely baseless conspiracy theory. Virgin Radio is owned by News International who, of course, also own The Sun. Britain’s most popular newspaper has been highly critical of Evans, regularly carrying allegations of his monstrous and abusive behaviour. Perhaps, the theory goes, News International have a weighty dossier marked “Chris Evans” and they’ve said “Come and work for us for or we publish. Come and be our slave to the rhythm”
